As part of the publication of our March 2022 newsletter, we wanted to acknowledge what is going on in the world. While we are all still coping with the lasting effects of the pandemic and now the increased uncertainty related to the war in Ukraine, we want to express that we are an organisation rooted in optimism and hope. We are hopeful that the days, weeks, and months ahead are marked by stability and peace and that we are all able to work towards building a better future for generations to come.
